Music education in Jewish schools of metropolitan New York

Doctoral dissertation from Columbia University Teachers College. Music education in Jewish schools reveals a situation representative of many private institutions. Jewish schools are usually small, face financial problems, and suffer schedule constraints due to the combination of secular and religious studies. In such schools the program is usually confined to singing and public performance. The author recommends increased time for music programs, and improved facilities and curricula.
